The integration of electronic engineering, mechanical engineering, control and computer engineering Mechatronics lies at the heart of the innumerable gadgets, processes and technology that makes modern life would seem impossible. From auto-focus cameras to car engine management systems, and from state-of-the-art robots to the humble washing machine, Mechatronics has a hand in them all. This book presents a clear and comprehensive introduction to the area. Practical and applied, it helps you to acquire the mix of skills you will need to comprehend and design mechatronic systems. It also goes much deeper, explaining the very philosophy of mechatronics, and, in so doing, provides you with a frame of understanding to develop a truly interdisciplinary and integrated approach to engineering. New to this edition: Inclusion of material on the Arduino open-source electronic prototyping platform and the Arduino programming language Even more mechatronic systems topics New section on robotic systems Updated resources for instructors available at www.pearsoned.co.uk/Bolton "Mechatronics "is essential reading for students requiring an introduction to this exciting area at undergraduate and higher diploma level. Bill Bolton was formerly Consultant to the Further Education Unit and Head of Research and Development and Monitoring at the Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC). He has also been a UNESCO consultant and is the author of many successful engineering textbooks."

Robotic vision, the combination of robotics and computer vision, involves the application of computer algorithms to data acquired from sensors. The research community has developed a large body of such algorithms but for a newcomer to the field this can be quite daunting. For over 20 years the author has maintained two open-source MATLAB® Toolboxes, one for robotics and one for vision. They provide implementations of many important algorithms and allow users to work with real problems, not just trivial examples. This book makes the fundamental algorithms of robotics, vision and control accessible to all. It weaves together theory, algorithms and examples in a narrative that covers robotics and computer vision separately and together. Using the latest versions of the Toolboxes the author shows how complex problems can be decomposed and solved using just a few simple lines of code. The topics covered are guided by real problems observed by the author over many years as a practitioner of both robotics and computer vision. It is written in an accessible but informative style, easy to read and absorb, and includes over 1000 MATLAB and Simulink® examples and over 400 figures. The book is a real walk through the fundamentals of mobile robots, arm robots. then camera models, image processing, feature extraction and multi-view geometry and finally bringing it all together with an extensive discussion of visual servo systems. This second edition is completely revised, updated and extended with coverage of Lie groups, matrix exponentials and twists; inertial navigation; differential drive robots; lattice planners; pose-graph SLAM and map making; restructured material on arm-robot kinematics and dynamics; series-elastic actuators and operational-space control; Lab color spaces; light field cameras; structured light, bundle adjustment and visual odometry; and photometric visual servoing. “An authoritative book, reaching across fields, thoughtfully conceived and brilliantly accomplished!” OUSSAMA KHATIB, Stanford

Mechatronics is today fast developing as an interdisciplinary branch of engineering. This book offers a comprehensive coverage of the design and application of mechatronic systems. It discusses in detail the construction, operation, features and applications of various components of mechatronic systems. The text, profusely illustrated with diagrams, emphasizes the readers’ multidisciplinary skills and ability to design and maintain different mechatronic systems. Key Features : • Motivational assignments given at the end of each chapter and the Case Studies provided at the end of the book direct the readers to applications of mechatronics concepts in the real-world problems encountered in engineering practice. • Separate chapters are devoted to the advanced topics of Robotics and Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS). • The text is supported by a fair number of photographs of mechatronic systems and their components. This student-friendly text is primarily intended for the students of undergraduate and diploma courses in mechanical, electronics, industrial, and mechatronics engineering. It will also be of immense use to practising engineers.

Mechatronics, a synergistic combination of mechanical, electronic and computing engineering technologies, is a truly multidisciplinary approach to engineering. New products based on mechatronic principles are demonstrating reduced mechanical complexity, increased performance and often previously impossible capabilities. This book contains the papers presented at the UK Mechatronics Forum's 6th International Conference, held in Sk�vde, Sweden, in September 1998. Many of these high-quality papers illustrate the tremendous influence of mechatronics on such areas as manufacturing machinery, automotive engineering, textiles manufacture, robotics, and real-time control and vision systems. There are also papers describing developments in sensors, actuators, control and data processing techniques, such as fuzzy logic and neural networks, all of which have practical application to mechatronic systems.
